|Steve Jobs (CEO Apple and Pixar Animation) delivers his Stanford Commencement Speech 2005 to the graduates of Stanford University. He tells three stories from his life: connecting the dots, love and loss and death!
Extract: ”Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick.
Don’t lose faith.
I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.
As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
